We recently learned that Star Wars breakout Daisy Ridley is eyeing a side hustle as a singer (although it's strange to call something a side passion when you end up in the studio with the legendary Barbra Streisand). But it seems singing isn't this Force-ful actor's only musical gift: She's also a rapper.

"I've got a good eye for talent," Star Wars: The Force Awakens actor John Boyega jokes in a bonus feature on the Target edition of the film's DVD/Blu-ray release. "I just said [to Ridley] 'You know what, I can make you a big star.'"

While Boyega beatboxes, Ridley spits a few quick bars about the experience of making Star Wars: The Force Awakens. "We all up in the desert and we filming Star Wars / Because of our diet we can eat no Mars bars / Because of the explosions JB [John Boyega] crawling on all fours / because of all the heat we can really make some s'mores."

Wow. The Force is clearly strong with this one. Watch Ridley rap below and keep your fingers crossed for her hip-hop debut Straight Outta Jakku to materialize.
